The Spa After Dark event at The Spa at PGA National

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On Wednesday, July 20th about 200 locals including my husband and me enjoyed a fun filled event at The Spa at PGA National.  Attendees enjoyed a Latin-themed event that featured multiple beauty demonstrations, live entertainment, refreshments and several vendors showing off their retail products lines all carried at The Spa.

My husband and I gained some great insight on fillers like Botox and Juvederm in a conversation with Palm Beach Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Frederic M.Barr. Dr Barr demonstrated on an actual patient how the Juvederm fillers can benefit clients. Results were apparent immediately, as his patient received injections in her eye and lip area.  Dr. Barr happily answered all our questions in regards to Botox and went into great detail of its safety and benefits. Dr. Barr now offers his medical spa services weekly at the Spa at PGA National at reasonable prices.

My husband and I headed out to the outdoor area where the Spa’s Waters of the Worlds mineral pools are where we were offered appetizers and sipped on our cocktails as we listened to Latin music. We were entertained by Zumba performances that took place in a couple locations poolside throughout the evening. Esther Sierra taught a live class and showed other guests how to salsa
the night away while we watched and enjoyed the beat of music with a Latin flair.

Indoors, we  had a chance to be educated on several product lines like Moroccan Oil, Epicuren, Phytomer and Clarisonic. I watched as a Jane Iredale Make up Artist gave a guest a complimentary makeovers. Representatives from several upscale beauty products not only answered questions but allowed me and other guests to try products. I personally have never gotten a chance to sample some of the products like Epicuren, a pure skin care line using only luxurious natural ingredients.

Multiple open bars featured Blue Hawaiian cocktails, wine, beer and full liquor service while servers walked around the Waters of the World outdoor area with delicious food offerings. Menu items included Latin favorites, ceviche, empanadas, mini Cuban sandwiches and papa rellenas.

Silent Auctions featured items like a Moroccan Oil Gift set, A Epicuren Gift basket, A Pure Fiji Gift Set and Jewelry. The auction proceeds and a portion of tickets sales were donated to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  And the retail boutique offered
a generous 10% discount to all guests for that night only.

After we enjoyed a couple hours at the event we topped the night off with an enjoyable dining experience at i-bar. The resort’s lobby bar and lounge area offers a full menu. We had a chance to enjoy a scrumptious dinner there. We tried the Snapper Ceviche, appe-tini and for our main course, Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches and Crabcake Sandwiches which were both delicious.

If you missed out on this exciting event don’t forget The Spa at PGA National offers the Waters of the World pools which is an exclusive spa amenity available only at this local spa.  Be sure to visit The Spa website for more information.

The Youth Revelation Facial at the Spa at PGA National Resort

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Spa at PGA National Resort recently added a variety of services to their spa menu featuring the Phytomer line of products. According to the Spa at PGA’s Aesthetician, Gulnur, natural resources from the Mediterranean Sea like algae and seaweed are used to create these top of the line marine based products. Gulnur enthusiastically explained that the various kinds of seaweed and algae offer up some stupendous results like skin rejuvenation, firming, tightening and softening of the skin in addition to detoxification as well.

The Spa at PGA

I had the pleasure of  enjoying a treatment administered by an Aesthetician named Gulnur called The Youth Revelation Facial with Back Treatment. Gulnur spoke very passionately about the Phytomer product line and her passion for skincare really shined through. She was truly a pro at what she does.

Highlights of the Youth Revelation Facial with Back Treatment included:

  • A back treatment to start – a seaweed mixture was applied to a plastic layer that was on the massage bed. Then a layer of gauze between me and the mixture. This mixture behind my back was heated and had a bubbling sensation down my spine like nothing I have experienced before. This sensation lasted  for at least the first 20 minutes of my facial.
  • Double the cleansing steps: Gulnur manually massaged my face and decollete with a milky cleanser first. Then she used the Clarisonic cleansing brush system to apply a gel cleanser giving me a pleasant facial massage with the brush.
  • Double the exfoliating treatment applications – Gulnur used a resurfacing exfoliant that has 3 different sized grains in it to exfoliate the different layers of dry skin from largest to smallest.  Then she used an Enzymatic Exfoliant that is made with Red Algae. Red Algae increases circulation in the face, leaving me with a  radiant appearance.
  • Double the masks – Gulnur gently painted on a rebalancing Self Heating Mask  made from freeze dried Laminaria,  a brown seaweed rich in vitamins. It was applied to gauze on my face and then similiar to a body wrap a layer of foil was applied to retain heat.  This was meant to detoxify the skin while also hydrating at the same time. The second mask was a smoothing mask which offers you an instant “face lift” since it actual plasticizes on the face. Gulnur was able to remove this mask all in one lift! 
  • Double the results– this facial not only cleanses the skin thoroughly but it helps with cell regeneration and detoxification of the skin at the same time.

Things you should know about the Youth Revelation Facial:

  •  While the benefits of this facial offer instant gratification leaving you with a radiant,smooth, lifted and detoxified complexion extractions are not part of this facial.
  • There is a slightly unpleasant odor to this treatment as the products are all directly from the sea they also smell like they are directly from the sea. The odor was slightly fishy but absolutely bearable once you see the results. Plus the top notch Aestheticians do everything to make the experience comfortable and enjoyable for you during your treatment.
  • An exciting benefit for all Spa at PGA National guests is access to the Waters of the World where you can enjoy three different pools and an infinity style outdoor jacuzzi before or after your treatment. Or sunbathe on a comfy lounge chair while sipping on smoothies and dining on healthy spa cuisine.
